about

With a country background, I get a bit homesick for rural Manitoba from time to time, but I'm still here.

lyrics

Living in a country town, living where the air is clean
Life was oh so wond'rous to me
Walk along the creek alone, miles from any telephone
Things were always clearer to see
Now I'm in the city, feelin cold and gritty
From the smoggy atmospher
I think I will return, to the place for which I yearn
I think I'm going to leave today

Life is so much cleaner, grass is so much greener
Back from where I have come from
People take the time, to know you by your name
You are more important than their time

Yes that's where I'm going, but the grass needs mowing
And I have to work today
Then I promised Lulu, I'd take her to the drive-in
To my word I must be true
Maybe by tomorrow, I'll leave my every sorrow
And head back where I do belong
I think I will return, to the place for which I yearn
I know I'd like to leave today

(Chorus)

Yes that's where I'm goin, but the grass needs mowin
And I have to work today
Maybe by tomorrow, I'll leave my every sorrow
I know I'd like to leave today, I know I'd like to leave today
I know I'd like to leave today

about

Trevor Toews Edmonton, Alberta

I was raised in the beautiful town of Virden, Manitoba.
I love Jesus and pretty much everything country.
It is my prayer that these songs will draw you closer to Jesus. :)
I am always looking forward to opportunities to minister in music as well.
If you would be so kind, please consider giving a 1 - 10 indicator here or on Facebook to help me decide which songs I should consider for an album.
